Union, NJ – The American Legion Post 35's Oratorical Speech Contest was held recently at Union High School.

Students prepared a speech on an aspect of the Constitution of the United States with emphasis on the duties and obligations of a citizen. The prepared speech was the original work of the contestant and was required to be between eight and ten minutes in length.

Upon completion of the first round of speeches, the moderator chose one of the assigned topics of the U.S. Constitution for the students to prepare a three- to five-minute speech. The students were not allowed to use notes for either speech.
